As a writer, I work on articles, books & scripts.
I’ve written my first feature-length screenplay.
I write articles for newspapers & magazines on a number of subjects which include, the arts; culture, politics & social issues. Some of the publications I have contributed to are The Independent; The Guardian, The i Paper, Winq Magazine, The Nubian Times & Pink News. I have also been featured in The Guardian, The Times & The Independent, talking about policing, discrimination & equality.
I’m writing my debut memoir looking at race & policing, & finalising a thematic research stage play. My MA Writing for Screen & Stage at the London School of Film has helped me to hone-in my writing & creative skills, allowing me to express my voice.
Before I became a police officer, I had appeared on television. Some of my contributions include the comedies Dinnerladies with Victoria Wood for the BBC, & That Peter Kay Thing with the namesake for Channel 4.
Since leaving the police service, I have spoken on television several times about social justice & equality. I have appeared on BBC News, ITV News & Sky News. I have also appeared on Channel 4, talking about Should gay couples be allowed to get married in places of worship? In addition to television, I have also been a guest on several radio stations which include BBC Radio 5 Live, many BBC Local Radio stations & Gaydio.
I’m a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts & was a member of The Writers’ Guild of Great Britain, as well as the British Actors’ Equity Association.
